Tick... Tick... Tick...: The Long Life and Turbulent Times of 60 Minutes : The story of how CBS's 60 Minutes grew from a little network experiment into a Sunday-night addiction for most of the country would itself make a raucous and typically compelling 60 Minutes episode.

Blum's unprecedented inside access takes us into story meetings, blood-on-the-wall editing sessions, turf wars, and the rivalries and myths.
